133 Spring Valley Road, Ridgefield, Connecticut: USD 3,395,000

American Dream

133 Spring Valley Road, Ridgefield, Connecticut: USD 3,395,000Ahh - America - the land of big landscapes, big dreams, big successes; and with big houses to match. Case in point is this 6,000 square feet family home set in a 14 acre plot in the bucolic idyll of rural Connecticut. Open-plan layout? Check. State-of-the-art kitchen with an outsized island beneath an enormous skylight? Check. Outdoor swimming pool, pool house, extensive deck for entertaining and a fire pit? Check, check, check and check. In addition to ticking pretty much all the boxes on the discerning modern house buyer's checklist, this house is also graced with impeccably stylish furniture and decoration. Unsurprising, perhaps, as it is owned by John Edelman, the design entrepreneur best known for revitalising Design Within Reach and for promoting iconic furniture design brands in the US.

What the agent says: "Widely published, the leather floors, modern transitions from room to room, the creativity and entertaining venue of the pool house and pool area, the views of the water with the breath-taking sunsets over the property as well as being the car collectors dream make this a very special property for the discerning buyer. "

What we love:
The effortless flow of the living spaces, the abundance of space and light and the elegant decor. This house is so choc full of iconic furniture classics it could easily moonlight as a design furniture showroom.

What we would do:
This is a perfectly refined and comfortable family home, but a touch more contemporary design and styling would perhaps give it a bit more edge.

The house at 133 Spring Valley Road, Ridgefield, Connecticut is marketed by Sally Slater at Douglas Elliman.  Prices and details correct as at 19 June 2019.
